Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

The grill is functional. No need to mess with it. I think I have the Ford oval off my Ranger (replaced it with the Mercury emblem found at the side of the road). Could put that in the middle, https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/a761dfd8c0d3d72be366c7d1f636b0d52c97d846/c=161-0-4526-2466/local/-/media/2...

Re: BMW M Committed to Manual Transmissions—for Now

Compass can be Amish as well. I think the Ram 2500/3500 with Cummins Diesel was ostrich-sized and has left the Amish community....but if one, or two, were to venture to sunny Mexico, they might find a Ram 4000 with 5.7L Hemi and an Amish 5-Speed.
